I recently spoke to a trans-planted easterner who was a Thunderbird sailor in Ontario
, and asked about them here. When I assured him they were common and plentiful here, he remarked he had seen few, if any, and it dawned on me that they were common years ago, but I hadn't really noticed any in more recent years, so I'm wondering if, being almost all plywood
, they have almost all gone, in favour of older, but fiberglass
boats that have become cheap
and plentiful. There seem to be a few holdouts, but it seems they are doomed to history
. Correct me if I'm wrong. Are there still a few around, and are they being raced anywhere?
